"The most anticipated release of the year"-Spin Magazine
Actually, I just made that up. But hopefully some of you are excited for the new record and will buy it. Word of mouth promotion is all I have to go on. Tell a friend. :)

ATTENTION:HELP!! If you happen to live somewhere along the coast of the PACIFIC OCEAN. Anywhere from Olympia to San Diego and can let a group of about 12-15 people sleep over, then contact me at We have sleeping bags and can camp in your backyard. The situation is as follows:PLEA FOR PEACE BIKE TOUR is going to camp along the coast, but geeez, those campgrounds are a lot more expensive than I thought they would be. To save a bit of money, maybe some of you live close by and can help us out. Here is an itinerary of where we are riding, so if you live close to any of these locations, please please let me know if you can help out. Peace, mike park

I'm just gonna come out and say it. This morning on my way to work I shit myself. No, I'm not proud of it. It just happened. How can this happen to a grown man you ask?? Well, I don't know. It's just something I can't control. And it's not like this is the first time for me. This happens at least once every two years. THe scenario is usually the same.

Always in the morning when I'm driving it will sneak up on me and then I'm screwed. The pains become greater and greater. Everything is attempted to stop the pain. I'm clinching the butt cheeks together so tight. Trying to suck it back in. Breathing different rhythms, whatever. It will usually work, but this time I was unsuccesful. And for some reason today was the worst case that I've ever had. When I do poo my pants it's usually just a little, but this was a lot. Almost the full load. I came to work and had to hold my shorts to keep the poo in. And then I made a B line straight to the shower. FUlly clothed I cleaned up and now I'm like brand new. AHHHHH!!!

Have a great weekend.
Mike Park
